It’s been a “ceiling shattering” week for Hillary Clinton and the ladies of the Democratic party. As the leading lady, Hillz is officially the first US female to ever win a major party’s nomination for Prez and this week she accepted the Democratic Party’s bid. How you like Dem pantsuits? Sen. Elizabeth Warren ripped Trump a new one (as always) and current FLOTUS, Michelle Obama, brought down the house (and internet) with her powerful speech. (You might want to take notes Melania, just not word-for-word).The internet was pretty much ready to vote for MOBAMA right then and there. And even her hubby, Mr. Prez was one of the first to endorse her and show his love. Speaking of endorsements, the Bern officially became a “former ex-rival” and said #ImWithHer by nominating Clinton to be the first female President of the United States.
Keeping with the theme of girl power, other speakers at the convention included lots of female celebrities, including this hilarious parody by Elizabeth Banks. In a powerful moment, the Mothers of the Movement, as in the mothers of the African American children who have been killed by law enforcement or gun violence, that inspired the #BlackLivesMatter movement, took the stage and made a case for Clinton.

But there’s already been a DNC hack. That party is being hosted by the FBI and the DNC chair declined to attend. So Hillary supporters said, “we take your Russian shindig and raise you an acapella “Fight Song” in support of Hillz.”
